an took us on a path of fiscal soundness. it was totally reversed in the bush years, our republican colleagues didn't say a word, they said no problem, it's the appropriate percentage of g.d.p. new york problem with the deaf zit, they never complained about it. but now with their initiatives, the ryan republican job killer budget is making matters worse. in terms of reducing the deficit. because it deprives of our economy of the very initiatives that would create growth. the education of our people, lifetime learning, for the american people. investments in education, as i said, nothing brings more money. investments in jobs, infrahave structure, energy, innovation, absent in the ryan republican job killer budget. medicare, so important to the stability of america's working families, the provisions in the affordable care act that affect medicare have already demonstrated that we're halting the rapid increase in cost of health care spending system of that is what has enabled the c.b.o. to say with more promise that we can use a different baseline to reduce the deficit and that has be
congress, including the deal on the bush tax cuts that were made at year end. $2.4 trillion of deficit reduction over the next ten years. and all also agree that $is.8is- that $1.8 trillion was gutting expenses and a little more than $600 billion of this was revenues achieved through the year-end bush tax cut deal. so everwhelmingly what has been done thus far has been in spending cuts rather than new revenues. it is very important for us to know that. it is very important for folks to realize that democrats are willing to make are hard calls about spending. we've done it already. but the question before this body and the question before the house now is going forward, what do we do to achieve additional deficit reduction that's consistent with having a growing economy? and the approaches of the senate and the house on this could not be more different. the house approach basically says that all additional deficit reduction should be achieved by cutting spending. by looking at one side of the balance sheet. i do not know of a business, i do not know of a family, i do not know of other u
the court hears arguments on the constitutionality of the defense of marriage act enacted during the bush administration. again, c-span and c-span radio will have coverage when the arguments are released to the public at about 2 eastern. it'll be shown again wednesday night at 8 over on c-span. >> let's go straight to a personal topic. you been on the commission since 2006, the chairman's been on since, i believe, 2009. his term is up, yours will be up next year. should we expect to see some turnover at the commission? >> guest: well, you should always expect to see turnover at the commission because we all have staggered terms. >> right. >> guest: the past six years have flown by very quickly, and we shall see, you know? stay tuned. you know, i get asked this question every couple of years, and when you've been there almost seven years, you get asked at inflection points like this. i'm openly thinking about it, but we shall see. >> host: openly thinking about what? >> guest: about what to do next. i have thought about that several times, you know, what comes after the commission. you kno
stephen colbert, businesswoman elizabeth colbert bush. >> i will talk to each other and listen. >> reporter: because there are so many candidates, a runoff is expected between the top two republicans. today is really a test. south carolinians are forgiving of sanford's past the question is will they vote for him again. >> we'll know by the end of today. kelly o'donnell in charleston thank you. >>> today marks the tenth anniversary of the beginning of the war in iraq, a bombardment dubbed shock and awe. richard engel covered it from the start, he's in jerusale sta. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. we are in jerusalem where president obama tomorrow will begin a visit to boost relations with israel, the palestinian authority, and jordan. for the united states, the war in iraq began ten years ago, but for iraqis, it never really ended. it began on a clear night, with military precision, as guided bombs brought shock and awe to baghdad. u.s. troops charged up through the desert, and soon baghdad was falling. iraq's oil money was supposed to pay for the war.
when president george w. bush launched a war of choice in iraq. dragging our country into a costly, bitter conflict based on falsehoods and hyperbole. it took president obama fulfilling his campaign promise to end the iraq war and we are grateful that he brought the war to an end. but we must not forget how we got into the war in the first place. so that these mistakes are not repeated. we were told there were weapons of mass destruction. we were warned about mushroom clouds. now i offered an amendment at the time that would have taken us down a different path. it would have required the united states to work through the united nations inspectors and maximizing diplomacy to determine whether or not iraq was developing weapons of mass destruction. unfortunately my amendment failed by a vote of 72-355. what happened from there we all know the tragic consequences. president bush dragged this country into an unnecessary war. no weapons of mass destruction were ever found. the cost of the iraq war soared far beyond what was projected. we lost 4,400 american troops in iraq and over 32,00

because we failed to be informed and hold the administration -- whether it's a bush administration or obama administration, all of them are guilty. and the reason they're guilty is because we aren't raising the questions. so i'd ask my colleagues, you're going to get a vote on a lot of this stuff, a lot of my amendments have bipartisan support, but we're going to vote, you get to vote on whether you think we ought to eliminate duplication. you'll have 17 separate votes on that. i'll try to wind those into two votes. vote against fixing it and then go home and tell americans you want to raise their taxes a trillion dollars. the presiding officer: the senator's time has expired. mr. coburn: and you do not want to eliminate the stupidity going on in washington. i thank the chairman and the ranking member for the time. the presiding officer: the senator from virginia. mr. warner: i just want to take one moment before i yield time to the senator from delaware to --. the presiding officer: there will be no expressions from the gallery. mr. warner: i commend my friend, the senator from ok
people in danger. wake up, colleagues. please wake up before it's too late. the fact is the bush administration found -- we got this through documentation, that climate change was a threat. the c.i.a. has found that climate change is a threat. the defense establishment has found that climate change is a threat. the only place that doesn't seem to get excited about it is right here in a bipartisan way in the u.s. senate. we know, again, temperatures are continuing to increase. the draft national climate assessment january 11, 2013, said heat caused by climate disruption is especially harmful to our children. now, i want to talk to colleagues who might just be listening -- they might not be because it is 7:20 at night. but if they are, you all say you want to protect our kids. you all love your children and your grandchildren and your nieces and your nephews. according to the american academy of pediatrics committee -- and i think we have a chart on that -- anticipated direct health consequences of climate change include injury and death from extreme weather events and natural disa
